Simple Steps To Writing A Good CV For Young Graduates by SamUtaji: 6:44am On Jun 28, 2017
One of the most difficult things to get right in pursuit for a job is CV. Most job seekers do not take time to research and construct a goo CV, as such their job pursuit becomes a mirage as some of them never get to be called for an aptitude test or interview.


To get a good CV, the following steps have to be followed correctly:

Contact Information: This should ALWAYS include your name, address, phone number and email. Your email address should be professional.

Objective: Your objective should be tailored to the specific job and/or facility for which you are applying.

Education: Keep this section as standard as possible and leave off all high school information. Include: name of degree, anticipated date of graduation, name of institution, city/state, and GPA if at least a 3.0.

Skills & Qualifications: Consider the skills, strengths, knowledge and competencies you possess as it directly relates to the position. You may also want to use an existing job description to help you brainstorm for this section.

Relevant Experience: If you have relevant experience, this is one of the most important parts of your CV. Bullets are preferred over heavily worded paragraphs. Three to five bullets per job is considered the norm. Begin each bullet with an action verb. List in reverse chronological order (starting with your current job and working back).

Additional Experience: Use this section to discuss additional work experience and to show some of your work history. Try to touch on transferable skills that would also be beneficial in the job you are seeking.

Memberships: Include organization name and dates of membership as well as professional bodies you belong

References: Provide only if requested. For now, saying ‘available upon request’ is appropriate.

Quick Tips: Be sure to proofread, checking for spelling or grammatical errors, formatting, consistency, neatness and flow. Avoid using templates and update your CV regularly. Also, remember to tailor your CV to the position for which you apply.

Very good... but allow me to deviate a bit.

For Freshers/New Graduates, I like this arrangement:
• Professional/Profile/Career Summary
• Personal Detail/Bio-data (optional)
• Education
• Professional/Work Experience
• Accomplishments/Achievements
• Core/Key Skills/Competencies
• Training/Membership/Affiliation/Certification
• Referees: Either you provide 2/3 or purely ‘Available on request’

For The Experienced:
• Professional/Profile/Career Summary
• Core/Key Skills/Competencies
• Professional/Work Experience
• Accomplishments/Achievements
• Education
• Training/Membership/Affiliation/Certification
• Referees: Either you provide 2/3 or purely ‘Available on request’

Here is a specific sample with catchy layout and key-word content. View other 3 samples that would 'wow' you here:

CV is Exaggerated in this part of the world.
A great CV works but not in all cases, in fact not in most cases..

Man-know-Man syndrome don take over our Labour market...though all things being equal.. Some organisation still employ on Merit.

Nice write up, but it can't get you a job in Nigeria. I got a job without my CV, the CEO only engaged me in an open interview. So all these CVs stuff is a trash. Go to the northern part of the country, in fact their CV is just like A for Apple. Yet they used to have the best job ever. You can Google search it

Nigeria graduates are tired of writing and submitting CV

Copy and paste CV for that matter


Company should just invite everybody and give them aptitude test
